… POTUS should seek a Political Endorsement from Congress [#I.S.I.L.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 13th,2016

.. constitutionally , POTUS has the power to go to battle with I.S.I.L. ….

.. morally , legally , and most of all , politically , he does not …

.. he is easily the most vain and inept POTUS in our nation ‘ s history . He is an incompetent boob , a twit , a narcissistic bastard … so many , many people , including me , have a complete and total lack of believability in this man , our President . We lack faith in his judgement …

.. he does not have a great deal of political capital . He is going to need to spend a fair bit of it to get an endorsement from Congress . Neither the members of his own party , much less the GOP , have much faith in him . However , they will follow when he finally decides to learn something about leadership …

.. But , he has to lead . That is a word that he is not very well acquainted with , not much very well whatsoever . He must lead …

— [update] — the new Congress that is elected will force POTUS ‘ hand . They will bring up an AUMF resolution for use against I.S.I.L. [the proper term] , and debate it . The Congressional leadership [both parties] will make sure that there are the votes for THE AUMF TO PASS With plenty of margin . That will allow any of the weak – kneed types to opt out of the vote , and to have a safe vote ….

… Obama pushes Netanyahu for Ceasefire [#DebkaFiles]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 6th,2014

.. Bibi should tell Obama to stuff it , and butt out .

.. especially considering the obscenity of a peace ” deal ” that SecState JohnBoy Kerry brought to town this past weekend . It was not just bad . It was worse …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intel snipet …

.. Obama has to be kidding , given the military situation . Isarel is kicking Hamas ‘ ass , big time . Only some political weakness in Jerusalem will save Hamas from getting the serious butt kicking that they richly deserve …

.. It is about time . Bibi has to make it clear , if necessary , in writing , to POTUS and SecState about Hamas ‘ situation . The bad pr from the humanitarian situation is a fact of war , and is entirely of Hamas ‘ doing .

.. Hamas bases its munitions and tunnels in civilian areas , thus putting civilians at risk . No matter how many precautions that Israel may take , there are going to be civilian casualties , like it or not . Hamas is thus the cause of the casualties , not Israel . Hamas provoked this conflict , and now they are going to ” get it …. “

… Another Newspaper Endorsement for Bruce Rauner [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. and this one is a big surprise …

.. why ? it is the Chicago Sun – Times …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the newspaper endorsement …

.. the timing could not be better . EArly voting has begun in Illinois , and the endorsements of both the Tribune and the Sun – Times will [or should be] be of help to Rauner on gathering votes from suburbanites in the Chicagoland area and the surrounding countines …

.. downstate , the folks could not care less . Up around Chicago , and the surrounding counties , it matters a lot , or , hopefully it will . Keeping Quinn ‘ s margin ‘ s down in the Chicagoland area [like what happened in the DemoCrap primary] will be of great help to Rauner and the rest of the GOP ticket ….

… good Going , Charlie Baker [#Mass Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 17th,2014

.. so far , so good .>

.. Charlie Baker , the businessman , is leading atty General Martha Coakley , 45% to 39%. This is in deep – Blue Massachusetts , folks …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. before , Coakley was up , close to double digits , and now she is behind . She is the known quantity in mass politics , folks . Baker is not . She should win this race going away , and , like 2010 , it looks like she is going to blow another statewide race …

… Virginia is for [#Politics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 9th,2014

.. a potential barnburner …

.. I have to admit , I did not see this coming . Mark Warner is a businessman , one who knows how to meet a payroll . He is also the richest DemoCrap in the Senate [up around $600 million in net worth] , so he can easily self – fund his campaign …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Ed Gillespie , the GOP nominee , is a veteran political operative . He has a huge bundle of political chits to cash in , so he can raise a fair bit of $$ for his own campaign . But , he has an uphill climb against Warner …

.. now , the polls have Warner well under 50% . He is now only up on Gillespie , 45% to 39% . with almost 16% undecided …

.. Gillespie will have some help . Virginia ‘ s legislative and state – wide elections are in odd – numbered years . So , the Senate race is the only statewide race . Gillespie and Warner will have to carry their own water , and each will have to make the sale …

.. who can make the sale best ? the one who does the best job soonest will likely be the winner , especially if it is Gillespie …

… In Brasil , think about Maria Silva [#presidential election]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 7th,2014

.. Marina who ? ..

.. she is a long – time sustainable – energy green activist , one who happens to be a businesswoman to boot … something of a surprise . She does not neglect her grass – roots activism , by no means . However , she manages to mix in the practicality of business along with it …

.. in Brasil , it is managing to catch the Brasilian nation ‘ s attention …

.. [h/t — theGuardian.co.uk]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. she came to the fore when the previous Green party candidate died in a plane crash . So , in stepped Maria . To everyone ‘ s surprise , she managed to convince a conservative businessman to run with her as her vice – presidential candidate . Since the conservative party did not have a readily credible candidate this time around , the tories in Brasil have rallied around Marina . Boy , oh Boy , has she taken off …

.. if opinion polls hold , she may well win the Brasilian presidency this year . She would need to beat incumbent Dinah Rousseff in a runoff , but the polls indicate that she would have a fighting chance …

.. stay tuned ….

… an Oil Price Shock [#a real possibility]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 10th,2014

.. it is possible , and it is real ..

.. unlike 1974 or 1979 , it is not something that can or might be reversed by a ” snap of the fingers ” …

.. [h/t — OilVoice.com]..
.. [link] to the economic report …

.. with Libya ‘ s decline , the possible damage in Iraq , and premiums that could price into the market , due to the effects on the Gulf nations and Saudi Arabia in particular , it could get nasty …

.. also , now , Russia is a major producer . It is also very heavily dependent on oil revenue as a source of tax revenue for its Treasury . The Russians may not want to turn off the ” tap . ” But events may do it for them …

.. also , here in the U.S. , if it happens before November 2016 , the DemoCraps will be crushed at the polls . Even Miz Hillary cannot overcome the effects of disastrous policies from the ObamaCrap administration …

… Congratulations to David Perdue ! [#GOP nomination]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 23rd,2014

.. I wanted to wish congratulations and the best of luck to Georgia businessman David Perdue , who has won the runoff for the GOP nomination for the U. S. Senate race in his state …

.. Perdue is well – placed to hold the seat for the GOP . He is already leading in the projected polls , and he is self – funded . Ergo , he can easily outspend the slime – bombs that the unions and the Dems are bound to throw at him … Also , his name helps ….

.. also , surprisingly , like in Mississippi , the GOP boosted its turnout in a runoff race . That kind of enthusiasm will help greatly in the general election , boosting GOP turnout , especially in the early voting period . It will also send a message to the DemoCraps that they are in deep , deep trouble …

.. hopefully , Perdue can establish a significant lead in the polls . It does not have to be big , but the bigger the better . It will discourage the Dems , and will be of help to Governor Nathan Deal , who faces his own somewhat tough re – election race against state Sen Jason Carter [jimmy Carter ‘ s grandson] …

… Great Campaign Ad (Oregon US Senate) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 29th,2014

.. amazing woman , and , so far , an amazing campaign ..

.. Dr. Monica Wehby [Web – by] is a pediatric surgeon . She made a tough call , and stood foursquare by her patient when she needed her most , when she was pregnant , and her child ‘ s life was in danger . The results stand for themselves …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad ..

.. normally , Monica Wehby would face long odds in a light – blue state such as Oregon . This is no ordinary year , and Oregon ‘ s state government is in a disastrous mess . It will turn the politics and the campaign trail upside down . Dr. Wehby now will have a very real chance to unseat the incumbent , Jeff Merkely …

.. I would definitely vote for her , and I think that she just might do it ..

… Go , Joni , Go [Joni Ernst , in Iowa (US Senate)] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 19th,2014

.. sometimes , a very good ad can become extraordinary …

.. so far , Joni Ernst has been steadily coming up in the polls …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. a solid resume sure helps . An Iowa mother , a veteran of military service , a conservative , and a farmer [yes , even a pig farmer] …

.. an endorsement from a figure with national stature sure helps . Sarah Palin ‘ s endorsement may not go over well with DemoCraps , but her endorsement does wonders in GOP circles , especially with women . Also , in this race , her likely opponent helped contribute to the ‘ till …

.. her likely opponent , DemoCrap congresscritter Bruce Braley , made a colossal gaffe by making a very stooped attack on an Iowa institution , the senior Senator , republican Chuck Grasseley . Grasseley , who is one of 2 farmers in the US Senate , is not one to be trifled with . Braley attacked Grasseley , and looked stooped in the process …

.. in other words , Go , Joni , Go !! …

.. here is a [link] to get another look at her now famous ad …

… Sick [Death Wishes on a Public Person]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 16th,2014

.. in this case , her name is Julie Boonstra …

.. Julie who ? …

.. [h/t — HotAir]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. Julie Boonstra is the Michigan woman who has gotten involved in the Americans for Prosperity campaign against a US Senate candidate in her home state . She got involved because ObamaCrapCare turned her health insurance coverage and health care status upside down and inside out .

.. besides fighting for her life , what could she do : fight back …. so , she did …. and how . It seems that her ads have been quite effective , as GOP Senate candidate Terri Lyn Land has taken a nearly 10.0% lead in the polls against her probably DemoCrap oppoonent . Especially since neither Land nor Democrap Gary Peters [who is a Congresscritter] have been advertising all that much on T.V. …

.. so what happens , the interest groups have taken over , and boy , have they driven the debate and had an impact . Nicely done …

… Nice Going , Bruce Braley …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 2nd,2014

.. Bruce Braley is a congresscritter from Iowa . He is also a U.S. Senate candidate , running for the open seat that is being left open by the retirement by the departure of Thomas Harkin , a Democrap . He is trying to win the DemoCrap nomination and then the election …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the video segment ..

.. Braley is also a lawyer , which normally in Washington , D. C. is an asset . Right now , after his foot – in – mouth stunt , it is not so muc . Basically , Braley attacked farmers in general , and his state ‘ s senior Senator , Charles Grasseley , in particular . In a campaign , to piss off a possible fellow senator is not such a great idea .

.. Braley teed off , attacking farmers , and praising lawyers . Really dumb movve , especially in Iowa . Agriculture is Iowa ‘ s biggest industry , and the state is chock full of farmers , especially ones that vote . They generally do not like lawyers all that much , either …

… Oops [POTUS and Pope Francis] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 31st,2014

.. know how you can tell a visit did not go well …

.. when the Holy See is in spin mode , and out – spins the ObamaCrap White House …

.. [h/t — TAS]..
.. [link] .. to the Holy See video release …

.. it appears that Obama managed to bomb in his visit to the Vatican . How an American President manages to do that ? With great difficulty ….and , in POTUS ‘ case , extreme arrogance …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] .. to the SpecialReport show segment

.. Dr. Charles Krauthammer ‘ s question is spot on , as usual . Whom do you believe ? …

After Pope Francis met with President Obama, each leader had a different take on their conversation. Where Obama said the conversation focused on income inequality and that social schisms were largely ignored, the Vatican said “religious freedom, life, and conscientious objection” were discussed.

According to Charles Krauthammer, it’s easy to choose who to believe. “On the one hand you’ve got the Bishop of Rome, the Holy See, of whom a billion co-religionists believe in his infallibility,” Krauthammer said. “On the other hand you’ve got a man who said, ‘If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.’ So who are you going to choose?”

… What Do You Think [Senate Predictions] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 31st,2014

.. now that I know of Nate Silver ‘ s new website …

.. and , that he is free of the New York Slimes (thank God) …

.. I will be able to bring you all more regular sctuff from him …

.. [h/t — fivethirtyeight.com]..
.. [link] to Nate ‘ s predictions …

.. here are Nate ‘ s predictions (I hope) …

fivethirtyeight.com prediction (03232014)

.. got it ! ..

.. I will tell you what I think …

.. [-] Alaska — Mark Begich got in by a quirk . Any later , by about 2 to 3 weeks , and Ted Stevens wins in a blowout after the outrage from the miscarriage of justice . Begich has tried to act as a moderate , but he is only a tool in Dingy Harry ‘  s shed …. most likely Lt. Gov. Mead  Treadwell will be the GOP nominee … will have big advantage , especially with former Governor Sarah Palin ‘ s endorsement (which he will likely  get) , because she is still enormously popular , and still lives in Alaska …

.. try 55%..

.. Colorado — Udall vs Congressman Cory Gardiner … Udall has been running well under 50% in the polls , even with his name , which is usually golden or silver in the West … the Governor ‘ s race will help tip this one one way or the other . John Hickenweenie is enormously unpopular , and will not have an easy time winning re – election .

.. also , the Dems will have trouble holding on to either chamber of the legislature , especially the Colorado Senate . It will likely flip , and the CO House might , as well

.. try 45% …

.. [-] Oregon — Dr. Monica Wehby , a pediatrician , is likely to be the GOP nominee up here . Jeff Merkely does not have a lot of $$ in the bank , yet . Also , he is not the ruthless politician that Ron Wyden (the senior senator) is . Also , the Cover Oregon disaster is getting enormous press . John Kithaber , also a doctor , is in real deep trouble , so Merkely will have no cover from the top of the ticket .

.. Also , the legislature is very much in play , as are two of the congressional seats held by Democrats . The Oregon House is very likely to go Red , and it might bring the state Senate along with it . The governor ‘ s race will get interesting , especially since a wealthy former Republican state rep , one who blew the whistle on Cover Oregon , is likely to be Kitz ‘ s opponent …

.. try something like 45% …

.. [-] Iowa — If Tom Harkin was running , you could forget this race .  He is gone ,so it makes a big difference . There is a barnburner of a race in the GOP primary . Congresscritter Bruce Braley is the likely Dem nominee . Braley should be clearly favoured , but is not . Terry Branstad is popular , and is running for  re –  election . His popularity will help rub off on the GOP , and should help make this one an election night barnburner …

.. try 48% …

.. [-] New Hampshire — former Massachusettes Senator Scott Brown is the all-but-inevitable GOP nominee . Jeanne Shaheen is still popular , but is still a freshwoman senator . Her vote for ObamaCrapCare will do her great damage . John Lynch is gone , so that helps . The congressional races will help , because both are rematches , and the ObamaCrapCare rollout has been nothing short of disastrous . One or both will flip back to the GOP , as will one or both chambers of the legislature ….

.. try 35% for now , but will develop …

.. [-] Michigan — Terri Lynn Land is leading in the polls , is better known , and has a great deal more money , and has been raising much more money , quarter for quarter , than her likely DemoCrap opponent , congresscritter Gary Peters . Various interest groups ads ,  especially Julie Boonstra ‘ s are pinning Peters to Obama . Michigan is more GOP , especially in off years , than most people think …

.. try 50% …

… to add it up — add in Michigan and Alaska , and for me , add in Oregon . I think that the Cover Oregon stink bomb will leave a big mess over everyone associated with it , including Jeff Merkely , who is a political lightweight . So , add it in as well .

.. GOP — plus nine !

… Why Does Not the DemoCrap Party become Anti – Gun ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 29th,2014

.. it is for good reason , Billy Boy .

.. guns are enormously popular , stupid …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to Bill Maher ‘ s incredibly stupid and dense comments …

.. and because the DemoCraps do not want to commit political suicide . Many light blue [read : Oregon] and pink [read : Iowa , Colorado , Wisconsin , Michigan , Pennsylvania] are immensely pro – gun . Go against the guns , and you will learn a very hard lesson …

.. the Dems will learn a version of this (except in terms of coal and coal mining) in West Virginia this fall . The Dems could lose 2 of the 3 US House races , potentially all 3 , the West Virginia state House , possibly the West Virginia state Senate , as well , and Shelley Moore Capito (daughter of late Governor Arch Moore , and herself a Congresswoman) should win the U.S. Senate seat in a blowout . The E.P.A. ‘ s war on Coal will be a big driver of the Dem vote to turn the state almost fully Red …

… Dum – Dum – Dum !!! [DemoCraps and the Senate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 21st,2014

.. simple .

.. Charlie Cook (and his crew at the Cook Political Report) are not exactly known for being a bunch of ” GOP partisans . ” They tend to lean somewhat towards the Democraps in their philosophical leanings …

.. from a posting such as this , Charlie & Company are planning (absent a disaster) for the GOP to end up taking over the Senate . It could even be in a ” wave , ” with the GOP picking up 20 or more seats in the House and much more than 6 seats in the Senate . It depends on ….

.. [h/t — Newsbusters]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. you will not see a definitive prediction on what kind of move that will come until much closer to the election . Also , the impact will have a carryover into the states . A number of legislatures (including ones that would surprise you) will flip control . Same with the state – wide races , especially the Governors ‘ races ….

… C.P.A.C. — Governor Rick Perry [R-Tx] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 12th,2014

.. here is the C.P.A.C. speech by Texas Governor and possible future Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry [R-Tx] …

.. [h/t — theDaleyGator]..
.. [link] to the speech video …

.. unlike most candidates , Perry is going to have one hell of a record to run on , plus he will likely have turned over Texas to another Republican (Greg Abbott) . He will have left Texas in great financial shape , and have done so as well in great philosophical shape , as well .

.. Perry will have a great deal of work to do . Unlike the other possibles , he would need to show that he has lived down his bombing in debates reputation . He never did it back home in Texas , but he did on the big stage . If he wants to be considered for the big job , he will have to work his buns off for it . But , if he wants it , he just may well have another credible shot at it …

… Interesting Ad [Louisiana US Senate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 18th,2014

.. that the DummyCraps are not going to like , not one bit .

.. Senator Mary Landrieux [D-La] is going to be very popular this election cycle . Her political position has become very , very precarious . She is either even in the polls with her potential (likely Republican) opponents , or she is trailing them . Worse for her , she is well below 50 percent in the polls . That is the ” danger ” zone for any incumbent …

.. Louisiana is an unusual byrd . It has what is known in the elections trade as a ” jungle ” primary . Democraps , Republicans , and Independents , everybody runs in the primary , which is held on the regular Election Day [in November] . If the first place winner gets 50% + 1 vote , then they are elected . If not , then the top 2 finishers , regardless of party , go on to the runoff election (usually held about 5 to 6 weeks later) .

.. this year , Landrieux should make the runoff , but it is not guaranteed . If she is the only Dem , then she will make it . If another Dem with any support runs , then she is in deep doo – doo . She and a republican will move on to the (December) runoff election . Depending on the General Eleection results , control of the Senate could be in the balance .

.. I think that she will go . Ads like this one will be thick as fleas all year long …

… Yes , People Can Lie like That [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 12th,2014

.. Which takes us back to JayBoy Carney , who stands before the White House Press Corpse , day after day , and lies , blatantly , unashamedly , arrogantly , corruptly , and stupidly . Of course, much of the press is complicit in his lies , failing by omission to call public attention to them . They are also often by commission in uncritically repeating them , even supporting them , and praising them. People like Carney always eventually pay for the evil they do .

.. Unfortunately, these idiots , like POTUS , usually do a very great deal of damage before that inevitable payment . May God in heaven help us all …

.. In the meantime , I hope and pray that the 2014 election (and , in time , the 2016 election) will demonstrate , convincingly , that the American people are not nearly as ill-informed and stupid as the Obamites so obviously believe . Hopefully they will demonstrate what they think of liars as well .

… You Have Got to Be Kidding Me [from a NAACP march] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 11th,2014

.. this came from Saturday ‘ s NAACP so – called ” Moral March ” in North Carolina ..

.. you see , the DummyCraps do not control North Carolina anymore . Patrick McCrory is Governor of North Carolina , and is a Republican . The GOP controls the NC House and NC Senate . They also control almost every other statewide office — except that of Attorney General .

.. the A.G. is a DummyCrap . Given the Brawl over the Voter I.D. bill , the Governor and the State Legislature are depending on the state Attorney General to defend the bill . Given the (mis)behaviour of several state ‘ s A.G.s [California , New York , Pennsylvania] , there is question whether this guy will defend the bill ..

.. the North Carolina N.A.A.L.C.P. is on its high horse about the issue . Yea , this state ‘ s N.A.A.L.C.P. is the same one where (the Reverend William Barber) has gotten himself into big trouble for running off his mouth over his public commentary over black Republicans in the public eye …

.. [h/t — Twitchy] ..

.. [link] to the post  …

..First, some background:

Leftist activists, including members of North Carolina NAACP, are in Raleigh, North Carolina, today for the so-called Moral March. Their mission? To screech about everything from abortion restrictions to fast-food wages.

North Carolina blogger extraordinaire Sister Toldjah has a must-read Moral March primer on the Moral Monday movement and its hateful organizers.

As bused-in protesters and professional agitators prepared to promote their progressive causes — including oh-so-racist voter ID requirements — the state NAACP told participants make sure to have photo ID handy “at all times.” According to the “Important Dos and Don’ts for Marchers!!!” you should bring a “driver’s license, passport or other valid photo id” to the march.

.. see the picture below …

… Touchy , Aren’t You [Cover Oregon] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 11th,2014

.. paging Dr. Kitzhaber , paging Dr. Kitzhaber .

.. John Kitzhaber is not going to have a fun or easy year . He is on the ballot for re – election , which is something he has experience with . Kitz ran for and won 2 terms before leaving office , due to term limits . Now , he is back , and is going to be on the ballot again . But , it will be far more difficult .

.. Oregon is an off – year Governor ‘ s state , so Kitz does not have the benefit of the turnout machine of POTUS to help him . Also , he does not have Ron Wyden on the ballot , either . Wyden is a far better politician , and also served in the U.S. House , as well as the Oregon Senate . He is no dummy , and has the connections with the eco-socialists and the unions that Jeff Merkely [who is on the ballot with Kitz] lacks . So , Kitzhaber has a big problem .

.. Well , he has an even bigger problem : Cover Oregon . Oregon chose to operate a state – level exchange , a choice that may or may not have been wise . The federal exchange is having enough problems , but it is doing dandy , in comparison to Cover Oregon , which is an abject disaster . C.O. is all the responsibility of Governor John Kitzhaber …

.. Which explains this blunder from this past week . Kitzhaber was having a press availability , with the local media  in that particular area present . Well , the articles from KATU – TV [ABC] and other media have been getting a lot more press in Oregon these days . C.O. is a disaster , with the waste of over $300 million in taxpayer dollars …

.. People are asking questions , and Dr. Kitz is getting touchy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 11th,2014

.. I went back and dug up this CNS article . It is about a year old , but it is more relevant than ever ….

.. It is the proposed rule that I believe syndicated columnist Marc Thiessen was referring to when he made his appearance tonight on the “Kelly File” on FoxNewsChannel . The proposed rule (in that article) is the one that the IRS has made final , now . Yea , it is micromanaging of a Business ‘ hiring and firing and staffing decisions , making them subject to the audit of the Infernal Revenue Service …

(CNSNews.com) – The Internal Revenue Service warned employers in a new regulatory proposal not to come up with clever schemes to avoid Obamacare’s employer health insurance mandate. The IRS said it would soon issue “anti-abuse rules” to discourage employers from taking advantage of any regulatory loopholes. “The Treasury Department and the IRS are aware of various structures being considered under which employers might use temporary staffing agencies (or other staffing agencies)… to evade application of section 4980H [the employer insurance mandate],” the IRS said in a proposed regulatory announcement issued December 28.

The IRS said it would issue a so-called “anti-abuse rule” in an attempt to prevent employers from using temp agencies to circumvent the mandate, essentially writing into law that even though an employer hires temporary workers and therefore is not technically under the mandate’s jurisdiction, the IRS would fine them anyway for not providing health insurance. “It is anticipated that the final regulations will contain an anti-abuse rule,” the agency said. “Under that anticipated rule, if an individual performs services as an employee of an employer, and also performs the same or similar services for that employer in the individual’s purported employment at a temporary staffing agency or other staffing agency of which the employer is a client, then all the hours of service are attributed to the employer for purposes of applying section 4980H.”

In other words, if an employer hires someone part-time, then uses an employment agency to bring the same person on for a second part-time shift, the IRS will still hold the employer liable under the ObamaCare mandate. Similarly, IRS said that if an employer hires the same person for two part-time stints by using two different employment agencies, it will hold either the employer or one of the employment agencies liable for the mandate’s penalties. The issue stems from the employer health insurance mandate in Obamacare, which requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees to provide government-approved, affordable health insurance to at least 95 percent of their employees (and dependents). If any of those employees receives government health insurance subsidies, the IRS will fine the employer up to $2,000 per employee, according to a formula outlined by the IRS.

The warning is part of proposed regulations from the IRS outlining how employers must determine whether they meet the 50 full-time-employee threshold and whether the insurance they offer meets government standards. The IRS said that a full-time employee is one who works an average of 30 hours per week or 130 hours per month, roughly 6 hours of paid service per weekday. The IRS also said that in order for an employer’s health insurance plan to pass muster with the government, it must be available to 95 percent of employees and cost no more than 9.5 percent of an employee’s wages. The agency specified that employers could still fall under the mandate if they employ enough part-time workers to equal 50 full-time workers. For example, if an employer has 40 full-time workers and 20 part-time workers, that employer would be considered by the government to have 50 full-time workers and would be subject to the mandate because the 20 part-time workers average to 10 full-time workers – meeting the 50 full-time-worker threshold.

… Nice Going , Your Lordship [Obama] [on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 7th,2014

.. you have always accepted the Congressional Budget Office as an impartial arbiter of the budgetary impact of your ObamaCrapCare policy . Well , they have come out with an up-to-date report , and it is not good , [link] …

.. these changes that have been put into effect by ObamaCrapCare are having a drastic effect on the private sector . According to the C.B.O. , these policy changes are causing up to (or will cause) 2.5 million jobs to be eliminated over the next ten years [at a minimum] . That is at a minimum , to be honest .

.. Given the forecast methods and models of the C.B.O. , I am betting that these numbers have been drastically underestimated . The C.B.O. uses Static Revenue Analysis in its modeling . Any competent economist in a case like this would use Dynamic Revenue Analysis . When they do , the impact is likely to rise by quite a bit …

.. just to check , that is 2.5 million jobs over a ten year period … roughly 250,000 jobs a year , or 20k jobs a month … that is not an insignificant impact …

… Watch POTUS get ” Fried ” [ObamaCrapCare joke] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 4th,2014

.. what happened to the fry cook , Darnell Summers , is no laughing matter .

.. the costs of ObamaCrapCare are going waaay up . The stupidity of the Essential Benefits package and the rigidity and bureaucracy of the system that has been created is a big part of the reason why . Also , the rules adopted by H.H.S. as regards to ” full time ” employees are giving employers a very good excuse to cut both  employment numbers and employment hours fairly rigorously  . They would be stupid to do otherwise …

.. The full time equivalent numbers give businesses an excellent reason to cut back to only what they need . If they can get below the ObamaCrapCare minimums , they will try . When and where possible , they will try to reduce hours per week per employee to reduce on benefit and health insurance costs , however possible ..

.. if you want to watch the confrontation ,  watch [here] .. Summers puts you-know-who on the spot , but good …

.. for those who are sadistic enough , and want to watch His Lordship (my term for POTUS) look like a colossal idiot , watch [here] …

.. [h/t RealClearPolitics , FoxNews]

Why didn’t you fire Sebelius?” O’Reilly said.

He avoided a direct answer, but Obama said that people were being “held accountable.” O’Reilly subsequently questioned Obama on whether his promise that, “If you like your plan, you can keep it” was his biggest “mistake” as president. Obama used a football analogy at the end of this line of questioning, saying he was trying to not dwell on the “fumbles” and move on to the next play.

O’Reilly also asked Obama if he was told in the initial aftermath of the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that it had been a “terrorist attack.”

“When someone is attacking our compound, that’s an act of terror,” Obama said, adding that he had used that phrase in a Rose Garden statement the day after the attack.

“Your detractors believe that you did not tell the world it was a terror attack because your campaign didn’t want that out,” O’Reilly said. “That’s what they believe.”

“And they believe it because folks like you are telling them that,” Obama shot back.

After some intense questioning about last year’s revelation that the IRS targeted certain groups, including conservative groups, for extra scrutiny, Obama took another jab at Fox News.

“These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them,” he said.
